you discuss the commonality between your organization, the nra, and the obama administration when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence? >> what we think works, and we support what works. i've talked about the eagle child safety program which would put more money into than anybody in the country. we support enforcing the federal gun laws on the books were under% of the time against drug dealers, gangs with guns, felons with guns, and that works. you've got states like california where they send more inmates back to the streets and have to put more back in jail for new crimes guns -- committed against their citizens than any other state in the nation. new york state, too. the collapse of the fiscal situation in those states has also collapsed the criminal justice system in those states. the nra has always supported what works. we have 11,000 police instructors and we represent honest people all over this country. there are 25,000 violent crimes per week in this country. the innocent are being preyed upon. the statistics are numbing and 911 calls are horrible. victims all

congress is going to do. but it is an interesting moment that the nra is being brought to the table. that should be an encouraging sign that -- around that table there's going to be a nice balance of opinion. >> right. different voices. it's interesting, the nra claims $4.4 million was spent on congressional lobbying. the brady campaign spent $5,800. so there is a disparity in terms of the amount spent lobbying. but they all need to be around that table. there should be a happy medium. i think everyone agrees that the second amendment is there for a purpose, but let's reach a consensus on this. >> absolutely. there's no way you can have a healthy, balanced gun control debate without the nra at the table. they represent a significant part of the country. but that stat that mark kelly shared, 85% of kids killed in the world happen here in the u.s. killed by guns. i knew it was bad, but i didn't know it was that bad. >> staggering and sobering. >>> the suspected aurora theater gunman james holmes acted bizarrely in the moments after the shooting, according to detectives who questioned

of the state legislature and was expressly supported by the nra and the california sportsman's association, and others. what the program does is allow the department of justice to establish an electronic database, that cross-references the firearms registry that i mentioned earlier with databases of our criminal history records, the domestic violence databases as well as the mental health records. and that allows us to create a list of people who are both armed and prohibitive. which is unique in the nation. there is no other state in the nation who is doing this. and so it allows us to capture people who have purchased weapons and then subsequently become prohibitive as a result of a felony arrest or a mental health issue. in 2005, that program went on line and would begin distributing this data to local law enforcement agencies with the hope that it would be enforcement of the apps program. it turned out that because of all of the fairest law-enforcement priority that local agencies have it was not greeted with and so we decide within the department of justice to create our own enforceme

congress is cowed by the nra? >> that is pretty clear, isn't it? you know, when you grappa -- when you grow upo -- you know, it is easy to say no to an opponent or to a constituency of the other party. it is tougher to say no to a friend. to a supporter. when you get these jobs, elected to the congress or the legislature or you get elected as mayor, a measure of your oath is when you can look a friend in the eye, someone that he mostly agree with and say, i do not agree with you and you are wrong on this issue. i think the nra is wrong when they say the answer to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. when they say that teachers ought to be carrying guns in elementary schools. when they say that virtually no gun legislation is acceptable to them prepared -- to them. that is, to me, and extreme position. i would hope there are republicans and democrats who can look them in the eye and say, i'm sorry, mostly agree with you, but you are wrong puritan -- but you are wrong. i still have a few months left. i would like to continue in public life. i have a thin majority whip, majority lead
